The creek-side restoration project removed an old farm dump from the bank river and restored the area with native plants using volunteer labor from a nearby local high school/ foster youth residence as part of their established hands-on earth science program. 30 tons of wood, concrete, and other debris was removed and 16 native plants were reintroduced! Youth-designed interpretive signage was also installed.
